Hello everyone I'm trying to buy the stuff to change the brakes on my car and I am seeing a lot of part number for different manufacturer...where can I get a good piece and make sure I'm getting to correct part the first time....

Thanks for any help I can get

Are u trying to go OEM? If so dealer is best bet. There's other after market rotors out there that will save u alot of money like Orielys and autozone sell them but I'm not sure how good they are

Go with Akebono euro ceramic pads and Zimmerman rotors. Check fcpeuro. Probably can get them all for $450. Zero dust versus oem.

I paid 40 bucks for pads (semi-metallic), and 20 for a sensor and did the job myself. Got the parts locally from a jobber. Zero dust and they stop my car almost as good as my OEM ones. Still stops shorter than any car I've ever owned.

I bought some Zimmerman X-Drill rotors from eBay and they've been great! They were pricey though. $125 a piece :(
